Springfield, Missouri State Community Show Support for Legendary Broadcaster Art Hains

As Art Hains, the Voice of the Bears and Sports Talk host, continues his fight against West Nile Virus, members of the Springfield community are now showing monetary support for the beloved broadcaster.

A GoFundMe was set up for Hains and his family on Saturday, with the goal of raising $250,000 for medical bills.

Rob Fulp, Chairman of CoxHealth in Springfield, created the fundraiser, with Hains’ son, Chris, named as the beneficiary

As of Monday morning, over $38,000 has been donated.

Reports say Hains could be moved as early as this week to a facility in Lincoln, Nebraska that specializes in spinal cord rehabilitation.

The facility has experience in treating patients with West Nile Virus.
